Arrow Hilton Hotel - Liverpool - July 2012 - - 29-07-2012, 21:42

This hotel forms a prominent landmark and gateway to the Paradise Project and its north façade is part of the arc defining the boundary to the parkland. As part of the dramatic £920m scheme on the historic Mersey waterfront, the ten-storey state-of-the-art hotel features 215 guest rooms over six floors, with a presidential suite, nine meeting rooms, a ballroom, restaurant, bar, coffee shop and gym, with 47 residential apartment to the top three floors of the development. The hotel serves as one of the largest and most striking features of Grosvenor’s massive Liverpool One mixed-use development.

doing a bit of night shooting around the area i had a crack at the roof of this hotel from a recent tipoff i was given ,anyhow it payed off

didnt really venture onto the bus station side as merseyside police headquarters right opposite was buzzing with activity so i kept it to chavasse park and either end.

pics arent the best as most of them were taken handheld exept for a couple of self portrait shots with the tripod

explored solo


this first pic taken from wikipedia,by the time i got down the heavens opened and i couldnt be arsed setting up in the rain so pinched this one

You could easily sell them to Grosvenor, they are far better than what i saw in the Shangai expo Brochure. Plus the left and right layout works really well.

You should ask for more than 500 quid deffo.


the revolution will not be motorised......
